[blank] - Finnegan's Wake [HR027]

by [blank]

Published


Experimental electronic music generated from different sound sources (musical instruments, digital synths, voices, noises...), sequenced and recorded live.

"Sometime ago I decided to read a book by James Joyce entitled Finnegans Wake, a work that is quite strange and doesn¹t make any sense. At the same time I was experimenting with several computer softwares that manipulate sound. The results of that experiments were quite meaningless, I was just testing different things with different kinds of sounds. Some of the themes had rhythm or structures more or less defined, another ones were just noise. Then I thought about use sentences of that book to entitle the songs, because both things were quite nonsense.
I suppose that I could define this CD as 'experimental music'"

Subject: Audio Metaphor of Finnegan's Wake
Finnegan's Wake (the book) is not for everyone and neither is this release, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have something to offer. The book is not a 'normal' book [it's the text of a father's dream (and of dreams within dreams)], and this is not your typical music release. It's a series of sound experiments [and experiments within experiments] in which things just happen - most often chaotic and unstructured, but, with occasional glimmers of surprising order. Just like the book, you have to approach this release with an open mind and in a relaxed state. [By the way, a decent attempt to explain the book can be found at: www.themodernword.com/joyce/joyce_works_fw.html]
